On one hand, nucynta is a narcotic that does not have Tylenol (acetaminophen) or NSAID in it, so that is good in your case. On the other hand, it is metabolized by the liver. And so if you do have issues with your liver it would be best to discuss with your doctor about whether it would be sdvisable in your specific case.
